Subject: Wish I coulda seen that smile
I wasn't there...no, I was a mere 4-1/2 years old at this point, but I can just imagine during the transition from Throwin' Stones to Sugar Mag seeing Jer look over smiling at Bob who's trying to maintain the Ashes, Ashes while singing to Sugar Mag's tune. Nicely done as usual.

Subject: Crisp SBD - Solid Show
Longstrange summed up the sound QUALITY of this board well (don't hear the popping mentioned at all) - fantastic. Strong show - Sugaree, Ramble on Rose, nice rarely heard Ain't Superstitious, smooth Row Jimmy with strong Phil, and a smoking Let it Grow make for a phenomenal 1st set. Terrapin is a nice 2nd set opener & come to think of it could've fit well in that position. Spoonful & Wharf Rat are also hot. Solid night, somebody invent a functioning time machine already!

Subject: I love being the first
Rejoice! I give five for a reason (or two). This is rare beyond compare. Mid eighties board that does NOT have the keys twice as loud as anything else. Mid eighties board that does NOT have vocals twice as loud as anything else. Mid eighties board with CRISP cymbals. I can't stress this enough. Those with ears know what I mean- the cymbals are NOT wishy washy on this one. Throw in a VERY psyched crowd, a good performance, and a Terrapin 2nd start and PING! TURN IT UP!
